  • We just adore these guys. When COVID turned our 200 person wedding into a wedding for 30, we knew we wanted to do something special for music. When we realized they could play the whole reception and not just the ceremony, we were completely on board! Ray and Jenny were amazing, visiting our venue beforehand to explore livestream options for us since we lived across the country. With nearly no notice at all, Jenny learned GORGEOUS vocals for our special dances and Ray worked tirelessly to incorporate Arabic music and special arrangements into their set list. We were pleasantly surprised by a touch pad kiosk they installed by the stage, which allowed guests to submit requests after they wrapped up the set list. At one point, Ray came up to us discretely and mentioned that someone had requested a Nirvana song. He wanted to run it by us in case we felt it would change the tone of the evening too much. We're glad we gave him the green light to "GET WEIRD," because their version of "S... Read more

    Dear Lara, Thank you so much for this beautiful review! Your wedding day was truly unforgettable and we are so grateful to have been such an integral part of it. Thank you for trusting ESQ with so much, and for trusting me especially to sing for your special dances. It meant the world to me. Let's do it again! :) With love, Jenny

  • Ray and the quartet were absolutely lovely! They learned a song for my husbands processional, and absolutely nailed our cocktail hour request of classic AND modern songs played throughout. They were absolutely fantastic! Would absolutely recommend.

  • After hearing ESQ at our cocktail hour, so many of us wished we booked them for the whole event. Our guest made comments all night about how great the music was and how different of a tone it set. ESQ can play anything from classical to current tracks. We 100% recommended this team. Ray...you are amazing, thank you for all of your recommendations with planning.

    Shannon, thank you so much for writing this review right after your beautiful wedding! I'm sorry we didn't catch you after cocktails to say congratulations in person, but you and Stephen make a beautiful couple and we're grateful to have been part of your celebration. We also appreciate the generous gratuity! Thank you!!

  • One of the highlights of my daughters wedding what is the string quartet. Some friends recommended that we call Ray from elegance quartet when considering what intro we wanted for our daughter’s wedding. This was the best and I mean best decision we ever made! First impression is everything and when our guest walked in and they were playing people were mesmerized by their music! They were truly awesome! They were so communicative during the whole planning process and even during these unusual times with Covid they were able to live stream the reception and ceremony so those who could not attend could feel like they are there with us! The clarity of this lifestream was truly remarkable, a keepsake we will have forever! The music dazzled our audience and their appearance was so fitting for our affair! I planned a lot of parties over the years and I only wish I met the Elegance quartet earlier, we cannot wait to have them dazzle our guests at another event sometime soon!

    Dear Annette, we absolutely loved working with you! I'm so glad we were able to share the beautiful ceremony with everyone that couldn't attend! Whitney and Patrick make an amazing couple and we consider ourselves lucky to have been a part of their celebrations. Congratulations to all of you!

  • Elegance Sting Quartet was the highlight of our wedding! They did a fantastic job with the ceremony, and we had a blast dancing when they broke out their electric instruments and digital jukebox! They were beyond helpful throughout the entire process and an absolute joy to work with. We could not be happier with our experience with them :)

    Lauren! We had SO much fun with you guys and your whole amazing family!!! Thank you sincerely for having us there the whole day — everything turned out beautifully and we hope to play for another family party soon! We have great footage of everyone gettin’ down to Lizzo! Love, Jenny

  • The Elegance Quartet played a major role in making my daughter’s wedding elegant and musical! They played beautifully and sensitively at the welcome time, the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the dinner, knowing when to pick it up, be romantic, or entertain my granddaughter with Frozen songs. They were punctual and set up in various areas of the wedding venue as needed. And Ray, the musical director, was great to work with--always responsive to my emails, helpful in song choices, and perfect in playing our choices on cue.

    Thank you so much, Pat! We loved entertaining your guests at Brandywine River Museum. Congrats to Tom and Lisa again!

  • Couldn't be happier with Elegance String Quartet. They played for our wedding ceremony and sounded incredible. So many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how beautiful the music was. My sister in law and girlfriends were literally mesmerized during their prelude performance. Ray was very professional and easy to work with during the planning process. They were happy to coordinate and play with a harpist we had already hired, and were so flexible when it came to changing dates because of COVID. If you are looking for a string quartet, don't miss out on ESQ. I highly recommend them!!

  • I recently had Elegance String Quartet play at my wedding in Media Pennsylvania. Via email and phone call, Ray and Jenny were a pleasure to deal with. With all of our complex wedding planning, Elegance was by far the easiest aspect to coordinate and book. They were very responsive to emails and answered all of my questions. They were very flexible with package options, my song requests, and made perfect recommendations for classical pieces. When I spoke to Ray on the phone, he knew just what songs I was requesting just from my sorry attempt at humming them! They arrived on time, dressed very nice, were very professional and performed beautifully. Many people attending the wedding commented on how much of a classy touch they were! Hire them now!

  • I arranged to have The Elegance String Quartet perform at my daughters wedding in July 2019. The Music Director Ray Bicolli and his team personified excellence and professionalism the entire time! The music set was a beautiful rendition of classical morphed into rock and them R & B. It was amazing!!! Then I had the honor of having the Quartet accompany me and the Tabernacle Baptist Church Minister in the song "The Prayer." Our guest were in awe and mentioned to us throughout the entire ceremony and reception how beautiful the music was. I can't wait until my next affair. I will definitely have the Elegance String Quartet again!

    Thanks again Tony for reviewing us on Wedding Wire, as well! Your daughter's wedding was really special and I'll never forget accompanying you in that beautiful rendition of The Prayer. Looking forward to the video!

  • I am so glad I found them. I even paid a little extra to have them travel all the way to Sussex County NJ because they were so good. The repertoire list is nothing like I ever seen. I thought I would never find a trio that would be able to play all the different types of songs I wanted for my wedding, so they were totally worth it to me. Ray was an incredible communicator and very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions even when I was over six months out. I wish I had hired them for more time, but they just did our prelude and ceremony. So amazing, hopefully something will come up where I need to hire a quartet again! lol

    Thank you, Filomena! Your wedding was so touching and we loved being part of it. Anytime you need us, we're there ;) All the best!

  • My wedding was this past Saturday night at the Arts Ballroom in Center City Philadelphia. For the past few months, I worked with Ray Bicolli. He was amazing! So responsive, consultative and easy to coordinate with. We hired a cello player from his group to perform with the piano from our band. I didn't have to worry about anything and Ray made me feel super at ease. Richard on the cello was incredible and I was very impressed. Thank you Ray for making this process so easy!

  • Elegance String Quartet played at our wedding this past September. They played our ceremony and cocktail hour and were the talk of the town! Our guests absolutely loved them as did we! The whole process was super easy, and they have a great song selection to choose from! I requested the Game of Thrones theme to be played at cocktail hour and they did not disappoint!

    Hi Jillian! Thank you for the beautiful review! We are honored to have been at yet another Wiegand wedding! Thank you for trusting us on your most special days and all the best to you and Jonny!

  • We had Elegance String Quartet perform at our wedding, and would highly recommend working with them! Working with Ray to plan the event was a pleasure, and we really appreciated their deep repertoire from which we were able to choose the most meaningful pieces to us across genres (from Sigur Ros to Enya to Mendlessohn to Hall & Oates). Their performance during the ceremony and cocktail hour was wonderful, and we received so many compliments on how the music set the stage for a beautiful ceremony. We highly recommend working with them!

    Hi Liz, thank you so much for this wonderful review! We loved being part of your celebrations and working on your ceremony songs. "Staralfur" is such an amazing song, one of my personal favorites, too, and I'm so glad we got to play it as your processional! All the best to you and Jimmy!

  • The Elegance Quartet was a perfect group for my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. They arrived promptly and were a lovely sight to see. They played appropriate music through dinner and switched to a fun sound that brought everyone to the dance floor. The venue was outside, so having their instruments outlined in lights added to the ambiance. The Elegance Quartet was enjoyed by all, young and old. We could not have been happier.

    Thank you for this beautiful review, Julie! We love playing at Morris House and it was so much fun to perform for your guests! I'm really glad you trusted us with the Electric Strings add-on, it's always such a great surprise for the guests :)
